“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)
In the heart of every person ever conceived, there is a spot in the human spirit or heart, that only God can fill. People try to fill it with all kinds of things. Money and wealth, social status, fame and fortune, drugs and alcohol, sex and partying to name a few. But it is all a futile effort. How many stories have we seen, heard or read about famous people burning themselves completely out and dying young. You would think they had the world in the palm of their hand with fame, money and all the trappings of celebrity. Why do they turn to drugs and alcohol when the world is their oyster?
They cannot fill the God spot in their soul. I know I drowned my sorrows in hundreds of rum bottles until I finally asked Him to come and fill His spot in my life. He did and my life has been so full of purpose and that blessed peace that passes all understanding–a peace that only Jesus has.
Are you trying to fill the God spot with something other than God? Why not give Him a try? Ask Jesus into your heart right now and let God fill that spot with Himself. You’ll be amazed at how instant His peace is. Go to this link to ask Jesus into your heart right now:
Father, let this blog post go as a seed into the lives of those who are desperately searching for You. Let them find You today. Let today be the day You fill their God spot. In Jesus’ Name I ask. Amen!
